, kathy. it's because of her i'm here today and here at the city university. i sworn after i left maryland having left rutgers i would not go back to the university again. i'm glad i have broken that promise to myself and here. it's a pleasure to be on the podium again. we met in the '70s what we were both regarded as a radical scholar. some might not think that anymore. francis and i were asked by james mcgreger burns to be the co-chair of the american political science invention program. we came up with a program that even i think jim burns was a little alarmed by. he in fact put in to action. i have known francis since then. she has remained an honest and authentic voice of progressivism and radicalism with a deep interest with those they have shown -- the homeless and the poor. not how they can be helped but how they find ways to help themselves through the movement and work that they do. it's a pleasure to have her perspective this afternoon in responding to these comments. i'm very pleasured to jackie davis, the chairman of the -- and rachel and members of the executive committee the

to new york city is kind of a question mark. we have blizzard watches that have now been issued for areas of southern connecticut and that's new. last night, from boston to providence. so the i-95 corridor is the biggest area of concern for the heavy snow, the gusty winds, probably impossible travel on i-95. all of new england and much of new york state is under the winter storm watch. now, as far as our computers go, we're looking at the heaviest snowfall amounts. you're talking historic snows possibly in that i-95 corridor from the boston to providence corridor. about 20 inches of snow for this area. then a little less from new haven to new york city because we may get a winter mix during the day on friday. changing over to snow on the back side. as far as historic goes, the best chance of that happening, the coastal flooding, the damaging winds, hurricane force winds that would be on cape cod 'the i-95 corridor from boston to providence. if you're traveling there, you're not going to do it friday into saturday. that's a look at your national forecast. now here's a look at the weather o

. and as has been noted, it may result in higher fares, fewer consumer choices, particularly in of and cities where to carriers over love. in retrospect, the effect of the mergers suggest that, in fact, fares did rise on some routes, where the two merger partners used to compete. given the size of the big three, legacy airlines that would remain after the merger, it's not entirely unreasonable to suggest that they would have even greater power to tacitly agree to raise prices. undermining price competition and harming consumers in the process. indeed, if american and u.s. airways were to merge, more than 70%, by some estimates as high as 86%, of the domestic airline industry would be controlled by just for airlines. i fear that the flying public will see relatively few benefits while bearing much of the cost of this potential merger. another related issue is whether the low-cost carriers can continue to provide effective, competitive pressure on what would be the big three legacy airlines, should this merger of her. .. against large legacy carriers. there's reason to wonder whether southwest
close, the president's strategy is to go directly to the american people. you can't go to the city of chicago, even though you want to talk about opportunities, social programs, mental health services, increase in the minimum wage and all of the rest, you can't go to a place like chicago and not talk about gun violence. so what he's trying to do, i think, is say, look, this is not a rural issue versus an urban issue. this is an american issue. it's just one more way that -- he understands what the political odds are in congress for a ban on assault weapons. he gets that. but this is just one way for him to make the case to the american people to pressure members of congress and lots of them, by the way, as you know are democrats who are in districts where it might not be so popular. >> or states. >> or states. pressure members of congress with him at least in part of his gun proposals. >> dan lothian is also taking a look at this. this has been a manl juror problem in the city of chicago. president obama's hometown. here's dan with more on that. >> reporter: jim, the president is a

. in the city of milwaukee, they have involved 112 private schools in the program, nearly 5000 students. $6,500 per student. the total cost, i assume annual, 164 -- $154 million. >> it depends on how you look at it. milwaukee past its first voucher program in 1989. it served as a model for a lot of other state voucher programs across the country. it serves over 24,000 students. there was a study that came out a couple years ago by the state that found vouchers were performing at the same level as traditional public schools in milwaukee. a more recent study out of the university of arkansas showed positive results for students with vouchers. i believe the program has been shown to offer pretty strong results in terms of graduation rates, but the milwaukee voucher program has been held up as the model, and the opinions of it will break down exactly along the lines of a voucher programs all over. clearly, governor walker believes if parents are buying into this program and it is proving popular, it will prove popular in other school districts around wisconsin. we will see if the legislature is
